Abstract:

A plastic container to replace the fiberboard now in use would extend the number of reuses for the Star Pack and effectively reduce the overall packaging costs. Rough handlingtransportation performance testing, compression tests, rough handling tests at environmental extremes, dynamic cushioning tests, revolving drum tests, WVTR tests, ultraviolet exposure tests and a shipping service test were performed on the plastic Star Pack containers. Satisfactory results on all of the above tests led to the conclusion that an injection-molded plastic Star Pack container could replace the fiberboard container now in use. Author-PL
